Dear friends........I know that you are out there visiting, and I do sincerely hope that you take some inspiration from my musings and my photos.
That being said, my blogging may be a bit on the slacker side over the summer months, so please do excuse. I hope to be up at our beach place as much as possible~especially on weekends when family and friends can join in.
Here are some photos for you that I took today, mostly textures, colors and vignettes of our beach cottage decor. I hope that you enjoy them and that you are perhaps able to take some laid back time to relax over the summer months ahead. (P.S.....I WILL post when I have new website items that I think you want to know about, as I WILL be working in my studio when I am home.)
For a bit more BEACH inspiration.....one of the most knowledgeable ladies about beach decorating in a casual cottage style that I know is Barbara Jacksier. She has penned her first book that is sure to be a fabulous addition to your collection and is about to be on the shelves any day now! The book is photographed by the very talented Dan Mayers (who photographed my home for Romantic Country Magazine:-) and you can order your autographed copy of Waterside Cottages HERE:
My sweet friend Fifi who I had the pleasure of spending some time with when she was at my home for the aforementioned Romantic Country Magazine Photo Shoot makes these gorgeous tin hearts in many styles. This heart would be perfect for a beach house, or just to have the feel of one.....
You may just want to order one (or two:-) for yourself. Pop on over to visit her inspiring blog at Chez Fifi if you haven't been lately, and be sure to tell her that I sent you by.
That's it for tonight, have an inspiring week ahead!
